Julian Green has denied he’s been demoted to Hamburg’s U23s.
The 19-year-old star, who has five international caps for the United States and has been tipped to become a big star by national boss Jurgen Klinsmann, has be forced to deny reports he’s been dropped to the U23s by club side Hamburg.

The player has struggled for form in 2015, and just days ago rumours surfaced that he had been dropped to the U23s by boss Josef Zinnbauer.
Although the player only has 112 minutes to his name all season, Hamburg’s press officer Lars Wegener told a press conference this week: “He’s not moving to the Under-23 team. Our sport director said that maybe he could play for the U-23s a couple times when he is not in the first-team squad. The reason is to get him some matches and more practice. He is still with the first team in training.”
Green himself then posted the following on his Facebook page:
“Hi everybody, Just to make it clear: nobody from HSV has spoken to me at all. I read in the papers that apparently I’m now playing for the U23. HSV took me on on the third day of the season to reinforce the first team. This was and is my aim, and is the reason why I transferred. I’m a licensed player, I haven’t done anything wrong and I give all I’ve got in the training sessions. I always want to do my best to keep us in the league. If they let me play, I’ll shoot goals”.
Sadly, he appears to be a forgotten man after an excellent World Cup, and the situation remains murky… Look out for a transfer this summer.
